"geoclue[xxxx]: Failed to query location: Forbidden"

I stumbled upon this when debugging redshift on a new machine - looks like the mozilla API key (also used by manjaro, as it seems )


is hitting it's daily limit.

The suggested fix of setting ?key=geoclue from the link worked for me - no clue how to deal with this distribution-wise though.

Thanks for your time and effort,
This task depends upon

Additional comments about closing:  Latest geoclue package doesn't come with custom API key and is not limited to 100.000 requests/day anymore.
